Pharmacists are healthcare professionals that offer expertise in the safe and effective use of prescription and non-prescription medication. They advise physicians and other health practitioners about drug selection, dosages, and interactions.

Pharmacists supervise drug production and ensure that drugs manufactured meet the requirements as specified in the official compendium and conventional requirements before they are supplied to patients from pharmaceutical manufacturers. They oversee and supervise drug supply chain and ensure that the supply of drugs is within the law.

To become a pharmacist in the United States, you will need to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (PharmD) or an equivalent degree and pass 2 licensure exams; the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) and either the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE) or a jurisprudence exam specific to your state.

The first college to train pharmacists in the United States of America was The Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and it was founded in 1821. This was shortly followed with the second college, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, now the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 1823.

Currently, there are pharmacy schools in 46 states in America. Alaska, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Vermont do not have pharmacy schools.
